Yoni steaming involves exposing the vagina to steam to cleanse it and enhance its health. The practice has recently made the news due to celebrity reports that claim a variety of benefits, ranging from relieving period discomfort to improving fertility. The origins of Yoni steaming are unknown, yet this practice has been found all over the world – from China, to Germany to Mexico and South Africa, to name just a few places. Vaginal steaming has been practised by women for the purpose of postpartum care, as well as treating gynaecological concerns.
How does is work?
The warmth of herbal steam softly permeates the exterior of the vagina. During the process, which should last for about 20 to 45 minutes, the steam dilates the blood vessels, increasing blood circulation, providing oxygen, and relaxing the pelvic floor muscles. Beauty Tofu’s Yoni steam brings heat to the womb. The use of specific herbs adds layers of different healing benefits, depending on the health condition being treated. The combination of herbs works to nourish, tone, heal, bring in fresh oxygenated blood, and promote cleansing. The moist heat opens the pores of the tissues it comes into contact with. The water vapour carries the medicinal benefits of the plants, which is absorbed into the tissues, enters the bloodstream, and has a direct healing effect on the reproductive system.Vaginal tissue is one of the most absorbent of the entire female body.
Yoni steaming provides gentle and effective support for women’s wellness and is thought to be beneficial for reducing menstrual cramps, uterine abnormalities as well as increasing fertility. It is also thought to be supportive in achieving a perfect menstrual cycle, i.e. 4 days of bleeding, fresh red menses, no side effects, and a 28-30 day cycle. From a soulful level we also believe Yoni Steaming helps to unlock and heal the womb and provides a nurturing release of trapped emotions and or trauma.
